Default Valenti REVO LED Tail lights for 08+ Impreza Hatch

Now that these are officially up, can we get a thread going on these. Maybe someone can track down an email contact, or get somethings going to establish a group buy?

*EDIT - Start of a group buy list so we can better approach an approved vendor: (please also include the style that you would be interested in)

1: TFIVEM (Red and Clear)
2: Trustkevin13 (All Clear)
3: atf78 (Red and Clear)
4: Shaggy and the Scoob (TBD)
5: 2Keylows (Red and Clear)
6: jteran5 (Smoke and Black Chrome)
7: corvid (Smoke and Black Chrome)
8: Fadetoblack909 (Smoke and Black Chrome)
9: TheFuzzyPenguin (Smoke and Black Chrome)
10: Noximus (Smoke and Black Chrome)
11: XERO287 (Smoke and Black Chrome)
12: tcho (Red and Clear)
13: evilspoons (Red and Clear)
14: 20wrx09 (Red and Clear)
15: WhatsASubie (Red and Clear)

17: bajamoon (Red and Clear)
18: Pearlwhiteblast (Smoke and Black Chrome)
19: s.sands (Smoke and Black Chrome)

Now who apart from google translate can find out anything in regards to availability / pricing and such?

Happened upon these guys booth at Tsukuba Circuit at Hypermeeting this year...

looking at the taillamps up close , they seemed to me that they where 'coated' for a lack of a better term ... not quite like overlays , but more along the line of the 'Painted' tail lights people do ...

they where really nice quality, but for the price you would pay , better off making them here..



Though I had a pic of there booth ,

but only from afar hahaha you can see there logo on the banner in this pic

^^^^ They are not just painted, they are full LED. The reverse light area is also 100% different. You cannot make that here and make it look like that at all. Its not the overlay thats different, its the whole lighting.

It's already out on JapanParts, i want a set as well but they are super expensive. I'll have to wait for the price to maybe drop?

https://www.japanparts.com/parts/detail/45795

$575-720 (depending on the 18% off they give you) plus the shipping cost and time to get over here and through customs. Waiting for them isn't an issue for me, its the price. I'd pay $600 shipped at most but def not more. Too broke right now anyway

I guess 'painted' was the wrong term... haha I can't explain it... yeah , not much you can do about retrofitting led s into the lamp. But I guess I was trying to explain the feel of the red on the lamp if that makes sense.. I was trying to get info from the guy at the booth.. but the combination of my limited Japanese and me looking super foreign in Japan must have startled him.. all he kept saying to me was 'GR' while I was examine the lamp lol

I do like these, but I wish Valenti made the design more distinct from the stock tail lights. I really really like the brz/frs lights. I just can't see myself paying that much for something that looks so close to stock, even if the LED quality is really nice. If the price drops, I might consider it.

I would justify the price if these were more like the TOM tail lights with light bars rather than individual LEDs, but I along with many others, am just excited to jump on a potential new taillight (something they have never offered for the hatch.

In other news, I got an extremely prompt reply back from the vendor last night, unfortunately not with the kind of rate that we were looking for. We could get a 2% discount for 10 or more people. Which is a shame, given the minimal design change, it's hard to justify the massively inflated price of these. (Hopefully they can come down) It's to bad they can't just sell the modified inner, and the buyer could tint / wrap them to match the stock outers.

I'd want a set of the red and clear ones. I'm sure you know but make sure the vendor is Nasioc approved or else this won't be going anywhere.

Add me to the list if this happens.

Same here, tentatively. Of course, it will come down to price.

Ok, i have updated the original post with additional interested members. I have reached out to a few different resellers, trying to get a vendor to handle importing these versus going through the cluster of attempting it myself. I think first tier discount happen around 10 people, so if everyone who has expressed interest is indeed still wanting to be involved, we are just a few heads away from getting this started.
